Jigged Sculpin Fly Tying Video

Sculpins are on the menu of many a trout and char, more often than many anglers realize. A pattern like this is a great option to mimic this prey. This pattern can be swung behind a sink tip in your favourite run or stripped through a deep slow pool to entice a bite from the depths. I will tie this to my leader with a loop knot to get the most movement out of this pattern, in the hopes of triggering an aggressive take. Olive is my favourite colour to this this but white, black, tan and brown are all great additions to your fly box.
